    Normally if they met code when built, they are allowed to exist as is

    That might be the most negligent thing I've heard an official say.

    Everyone else can call the room whatever they want. If it looks like a bedroom to me, then it is a bedroom and an egress opening must be installed.

    The fire marshal told me he tells people that all the time. Basically they don't have a legitimate complaint because the landlord will simply say it is a closet instead of a bedroom. I found this to be a little lazy and concerning myself.
